April 2013 holds a great line-up of music for the City of Covington’s Rockin’ the Rails Thursday evening Trailhead concerts, and New Orleans own Bonerama hits the stage this week. You’ll find elements of vintage funk, free improvisation and classic rock in the same set, and sometimes in the same song! Bonerama carries the brass band concept to another level. According to co-founder Mark Mullins, “We thought we could expand what a New Orleans brass band could do. Bands like Dirty Dozen started the ‘anything goes’ concept, bringing in the guitars and the drum kit and using the sousaphone like a bass guitar. We thought we could push things a little further.”
Enjoy live music every Thursday in April from 5pm to 7:30pm at the Covington Trailhead. All concerts are free and open to the public. Concert-goers are invited to explore Downtown Covington after the show. City of Covington staff and volunteers from the Covington Business Association will have raffle and goodie bags for coupons and specials to area bars, restaurants and shops.
